In Topic: Tired of waiting for the D400 is it time to switch to FX

I think that the D7100 is the best all-round underwater camera on the market. Alex

Interesting!  I have been looking at going FX for a couple of years and never considered DX and the 7100 as an upgrade.  Hmmm


Alex, what are your thoughts comparing the D750 and D810 for FX?  For both wide angle and macro?


Anyone else?

<<Are you sure that do you obtains Synch speed of 1/800?


Nikon's specs indicates:


Flash sync speed X=1/250 s; synchronizes with shutter at 1/320 s or slower (flash range drops at speeds between 1/250 and 1/320 s)>>

 No,  am not.  I just regurgitated info form this review:



Would love to hear more info about the comparison of D750 vs D810, while considering U/W photography.

I have been waiting as well.


I think the new FX cameras in DX made will give us a similar resolution to the mystical D400, but with a better IQ.  


I am considering the D750 vs D810.  I think the only advantage of the D810 over the D750, is the D810 will give a faster synch speed (1/800) vs the 1/250 speed of the D750.


Above the surface, I think the D750 excels, but below, I think we need that faster synch speed for stones.

Perfect timing for me!  I am just beginning to look into diving the Philippines and certainly would like to photograph threshers in Malapascua


I'm also looking at Apo Island area as someone recommended that area too.


What lens would you recommend for the threshers?  I guess they don't come too close?


You went on live-a-board.  Is that much better than land based there?
